If all was happy in Bon Temps the last time you watched True Blood, then read no further … then again, things were never that happy in Bon Temps.

Sunday's episode of the HBO drama began with a few phone calls.

Still reeling from the deaths of her best friend Tara and her boyfriend, Alcide, Sookie (Anna Paquin) was tasked with breaking the news of the werewolf's death to his father, Jackson (Robert Patrick), while Jason (Ryan Kwanten) called up his former best friend, Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack, making his first appearance on the show since season 5), to inform him that his mother had been killed by a vampire.

Spoiler Alert: Things in Bon Temps, Louisiana, are going from bad to worse.

After last week's episode of True Blood – where a peaceful town barbecue ravaged by an unknown band of diseased vamps left many dead, including Rutina Wesley's formidable character, Tara – the show picks up in the eerie aftermath.

Dazed and confused, citizens gather at the local church, where Mayor Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) instructs them all to go and help clean up the mess the previous day's massacre left behind, while he and the police set out to find the culprits.

True Blood vampires may cry tears of blood, but cast members on HBO's long-running horror hit wept the real salty thing as they read the script for the show's final episode.

"It kind of snuck up on me," Anna Paquin told PEOPLE at Tuesday's premiere of the show's seventh and final season at Hollywood's Chinese Theater.

Paquin, 31, admitted she was one of several cast members who found themselves overcome by emotions during the final script run-through, but because the show is still shooting, she had more pressing matters on her mind.

"We're still working 15 hours a day, so there's not been a lot of reflection yet," she admitted. "I'm just more worried about whether or not I will know my lines tomorrow!"

Carrie Preston, who won at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards for her role on The Good Wife, didn't even know she was nominated until her best friend texted her.

"[She] sends me a photo of herself weeping, so I thought, 'Let me give her a call and see what this is about,' " Preston, 46, told PEOPLE in a video interview. "She was like, 'You got nominated!' "

By the time the True Blood star's publicist called to confirm the good news, the excitement had begun to kick in.

"I was saying, 'Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God' in the streets of New York, which probably made me just look like any other crazy person walking around the city."
